Working with large square slabs or stones

I'm working on creating a 100 sq foot side patio off of my garage. I have the hole dug, squared, sloped, and ready for crushed concrete. What I would like to do is install some large pavers or flat stepping stones, 12 to 16 in square and then in between them crushed stone, or something. Seeding the wide joints, between 6 and 10 inches, isn't an option and I'm not too concerned about material between joints moving around. The area is a low traffic area that is merely for looks more than anything functional.

Could I lay down some large pavers or stepping stones directly on top of the concrete fines after I compact, or do I need a layer of sand first then the pavers/slabs and then the material between them?

What sort of recommendations do you have for working an area like this? I don't want just a crushed stone finish but something with large sqare stones, flat, with crushed stone in between.

I did a paver patio a few years back that I posted here about. It's been awhile since then but I'm hoping to get some advice on working with large square stone or paver products.

Thanks, all
